National Age Team Takes on Queensland State Champs

16 of our best Gold and Silver National Age Program swimmers took the Queensland State Championships by storm this week at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre.

Notoriously one of the most challenging age group swimming competitions in the world, the squad knew they had to be on top of their game in the heats and manage the 30+ degree heat to progress through to the finals where only two visitors can qualify. With Japan and Singapore both sending their top age group swimmers, the group rose to the challenge with phenomenal PB rates in the morning and backing up each swim in the finals to come away with 11 Gold, 11 Silver and 9 Bronze medals

The swim of the week came from Monique Wieruszowski, who not only broke the New Zealand 15 years 50m Breaststroke record but also shattered the 15 years Queensland All Comers record, the fastest time recorded in Queensland ever in the 50m Breaststroke by a 15-year-old girl.

Milan Glintmeyer was also in record breaking form in the 100m Butterfly, swimming an incredible 1:01.96 to break Sophia Batchelor’s longstanding record of 1:02.60 which was set in 2010.

Overall, every single swimmer made New Zealand proud by their resilient attitudes and fast racing across a great week of top age group swimming.
